the unified institutional framework for banking and financial decision making but have has the problems with the euro now magnified the cultural differences and the problems in countries cultural differences as well unfortunately when you have an economic crisis and national politicians try and find a solution it's always tempting to try and find a solution that respects the cultural differences because those are often the strongest feelings that people have in a crisis there are two ways to go with regard to the current euro crisis one is to build institutions for a european banking supervisor and a european financial ministration and european leaders are working on these the other direction to go is to emphasize the differences among european countries and try and tailor the way the euro functions to respond to those differences. there will be some of that because we're seeing deals with spain and with greece we
saw deals with ireland and portugal all of that does respond to those feelings of cultural difference but i think in the long run the whole goal of the euro is to minimize the impact of those cultural differences on people's standard of living and on their financial environment a couple of cut questions arise right away talking a little bit more on cultural differences yes we see different european leaders work on a common solution to save the year or to save the unity of the european union but still it seems so heart to find an agreement is specially if we see how germany is reacting to greece and how the u.k. is opposing the financial policies for example so is it lack of trust or is it yet once again the cultural differences that really come in the way of their finding the common solution there are cultural difference. this but they're not
just european national differences if that was the only issue then the united states as one nation would be able to solve its policy problems by agreeing on a solution as you know the united states right now is very divided between republicans and democrats who have different ideas about how to solve our economic problems and so very little is getting done in europe germans have a belief that the way to solve the problems is by more saving and more fiscal discipline the southern european countries believe the way to go forward is to promote economic growth and not worry so much at this moment about the debt those differences are very similar to those between american democrats and american republicans well from the latest of french president francois hollande has sat that europe must advance at several speeches so some believe that we would be seeing the united about the emergence of the two tarik europe i think there is
a possibility i've written about that myself at the moment the levels of productivity in different european countries are large one can compensate for that with a unified set of financial structures but then that will take time for those structures to overcome the differences the instant way to say ok we have differences in productivity let's have a marked difference in the financial system for different countries and that would require splitting the euro whether it's a two tier system or a different access system or even perhaps in some extreme cases a return to national currencies and you've been bringing up the united states a lot we are going to have presidential well we are going to have presidential election in the us and yes we are. domestic economy very much in focus at this point and although the united states economy is exposed to europe when you look. it
willie hasn't taken a toll on it as much as one would expect why is that did oprah obama just get plain lucky well i don't want to argue about whether obama is lucky or not there's a lot of evidence that he is unlucky and there is a lot of evidence that he has good luck we'll find out which is true when the election actually occurs but as regards the american economy the obama administration spent a lot of money on stimulus indeed if you look at net spending in the united states it has been much stronger since the onset of the recession in two thousand and seven than in most european countries european countries have been living according to their belief in austerity so they have reduced government spending and they have raised taxes the united states was not able to raise taxes and did increase government spending now there's an argument about which is the best approach to restore growth i really believe what the american experience shows is that you
shouldn't raise taxes during a recession you should increase government spending and the reason european countries have had greater trouble is they have done what i think shouldn't be done they followed a austerity policy before the recession was over i remember president obama got a great deal of criticism in the very beginning when he actually went for the stimulus packages and for the injection of stimulus and to the american economy but then again and it worked out like you said it worked out better than it did in europe but then again can the measures that are taken to. fix the american economy be taken into europe going to say measures to fix europe as well or you do you do need to have different approaches because it is two different things still there are different things europe essentially has a double problem they have how do we get southern european and northern european economies to move in the same direction. and for that i think the answer is don't
pursue austerity pursue growth and then there's a second problem of once countries are all moving in the same direction can you fix the european financial system and create united structures so that this problem doesn't appear again as it may appear in the next economic difficulty if the current division among national financial systems isn't isn't fixed as the author of the over book on global population trends you have argued that the most important thing is really the distribution of population now that the rich economies are really out of steam and the global economic crisis god knows how long it will stay around will these sick on the sexual be capable of absorbing. even the scores of immigrants as they were for the last century well i think there's a third adjustment that europe has to make aside from responding to the existing
crisis and improving the unity of financial structure and that is europe has to adjust to the reality of zero population growth. europe after all was the fastest growing part of the world for much of the nineteenth century and even into the twentieth century and yet we're looking at a twenty first century in which most european countries will have very little or no population growth that means the structure of welfare health care pensions housing all is going to have to change now i am seeing very hopeful signs in many european countries that they recognize becoming more open to immigration and doing a better job of integrating the recent immigrants that they already have are going to be very important for restoring economic growth so i don't think there's a choice there i just think it's a question of how soon does europe accept the reality that its population needs to
be supported by immigration and that that's going to provide more of a benefit not a threat keeping in mind everything that you've sat and if everything goes by your scenario. and america's still today being the best places on earth to leave according to living standards. will they be america and europe be able to sustain their living standards like they are today i think they'll be able to sustain them to a good degree because they have the technology and the capital but it will take sensible economic policies if europe and the us continue to spend way too much on public benefits like pensions and don't pay enough attention to research and education to raise the productivity of future workers then things will decline so there is the risk that we got it wrong on the other hand there's no reason that european and american people and companies won't profit from the growth that takes
place in places like china and india it's already a global economy so i think the prospects are good but let me also. say even though places like shanghai are moment by may not be as rich as london or paris they have their own attractions being at the center of something new and exciting and growing fast can be just as attractive as being in a place like zurich that has a lot of old but stable well jack goldstone thank you very much for this interview a pleasure to be here thank you very much. it's perched atop a jar and the view from the kremlin stretches as far as the eye can see. for a city to all of siberia for centuries. it lost its economic importance even before
